Peter – GHMP Year 2 General Stream
Current placement: Director of Clinical Governance and Patient Experience
What my undergrad was: Statistics and Economics at the University of New South Wales
What I love about the program: It’s fantastic to be able to work in a variety of areas of the health system and gain a range of perspectives on the challenges that need solving both day-to-day and over the long term. The people we work alongside are also incredibly supportive and invested in developing our skills and understanding – it’s never an issue to ask questions which makes working here really fulfilling.
What a day in the life is like for me: Each placement in the program is very different in the types of experiences we get and the problems we’re working to address. Some days will involve shadowing senior executives to experience and learn how they manage complex portfolios and situations, and others will involve me working more independently on larger initiatives that benefit the operation of the district. There’s great variety in what we get to do, which makes the program really meaningful.
What I love doing outside of work: I compete in fighting game tournaments (Street Fighter, Smash Bros. and some others), so I practice and travel for those pretty regularly.
